Garlic helps prevent Heart disease

Garlic has been used for both food and medicine for thousands of years to help prevent heart disease. Garlic supports the cardiovascular system and helps to lower high cholesterol. It helps decrease the risk factors for developing atherosclerosis, a disease that leads to high blood pressure and other serious heart problems. It may help decrease the fatty deposits on blood vessels and has a mild blood thinning effect.

Kerry-Lugar bill – An interesting point!!

Now they don’t like various political parties having direct contact with Washington. I wonder how they would justify the direct contact of army chiefs and a strong spy agency’s chiefs and other generals have with Washington (and with visitors from every other power)? Why is it OK for them to run their own foreign policy, but not OK for the elected Prime minister, President and Foreign minister to do the same??
